HSMJ - Talking about High School

In my life this week…
This week I faced one of my personal homeschool struggles when I wrote my blog post on Nurturing Independence in High School. It was a healing experience for me and helped me process some things.  I am so pleased about the timing of this in my life.
In our homeschool this week…
  • We have been doing LONPOS puzzles each day as a part of our homeschool routine.  I am enjoying watching Sir N conquer each one.
  • Reading about tadpoles and frogs.  Watching them grow. We brought home a bottle full of them last week from Healsville.
  • We have read six of the LLATL blue book readers.
  • our Bible study apologetics.
  • Addition Flashcards.
